We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

I am 23 years old and an aspiring vocalist.  I’m too afraid to go to college, because I don’t know if I can handle being that far in debt when my chosen major would be in such a difficult field to get employed.
I have worked an entry level job for a major corporation for four years.  It is the only job that I can get in my area that pays me enough to get by, due to my limited work experience.  The CEO of my company made more than $23,000,000 last year, over twice what he made the year before, while we on the bottom had our hours cut due to “low sales”.
I live with my best friend and her fiance so that we can afford our adequate apartment, and am constantly having to borrow money from my parents.
Both of my credit cards are maxed out, and it’s starting to affect my credit.  I can’t even afford the $260 it would take to visit my dying grandmother in hospice.
I am one of the lucky ones.
Our voices will be heard!  We are the 99%
